I love my Joule 2.0
. I mean it. That thing is awesome! I encountered a weird problem with it today, so thought I'd document what I did. When I went to download my ride data to Power Agent, I was greeted with an error message saying that I had an unsaved ride, and that I should disconnect, do a Stop and Save, and try again. The problem was that procedure did not save my ride. I happened to know the date of my missing ride data, so I just did a File | Import | Activity Data, browsed to the Cycleops drive/volume, and selected the bin file right from the device. That saved the data to PowerAgent. I then downloaded my other rides and was able to avoid losing ride data.
The biggest improvements that I want to see are all on PowerAgent. I'd like to see the graphs reflect my Power and Heart Rate distributions, and not the standard defaults that get installed by PowerAgent. I'd also like to see better multi-ride analysis to easily answer stuff like "How far did I ride last month?", or "What was my average wattage for rides year over year?".
All in all, I can't recommend the PowerTap and Joule highly enough.
